The Funding Fight: BPS Panel Series

Spartan families & community members,

Do you have questions or wish to have a better understanding of school funding and finance? Have you ever wondered…how does the purchase of that new scoreboard or other athletic upgrade affect teacher pay? Why do we need another bond issue and will it impact my property taxes? How is our state aid determined? How can I help advocate for smaller class sizes? How would vouchers impact our school district's financial status?

Join us for a series of panel sessions BPS is hosting alongside Bixby PLAC, open to our entire community, to learn the basics of Oklahoma school finance and understand how decisions at the Capitol impact our classrooms in BPS. This is also an opportunity to engage with local legislators on these important topics.
